Shia LaBeouf’s collaborators elaborate on rape allegations

Shia-LeBeouf-creditShia LaBeouf‘s performance art collaborators Luke Turner and Nastja Säde Rönkkö have confirmed over Twitter that he was assaulted during his #IAMSORRY project. The Fury actor made headlines Friday morning when he told Dazed via e-mail interview that a woman had whipped him before sexually assaulting him during the art installation. Ronkko tweeted a “clarification” about the art project on Sunday in light of Shia’s claim. “Nowhere did we state that people could do whatever they wanted to Shia during #IAMSORRY,” he tweeted. “As soon as we were aware of the incident starting to occur, we put a stop to it and ensured that the woman left.”

Piers Morgan, who previously tweeted that Shia was “crying fake rape to promote himself,” confronted the other collaborator, Luke Turner, the same day, asking why they let his assailant “just walk away.” Turner replied on Twitter: “It wasn’t clear at the time precisely what had happened, & the 1st priority was to ensure everybody’s safety in the gallery. She ran out, rather than simply walking away. Beyond that, it’s not my place to comment.” ~Kelly Townsend

    My favorite tradition at Christmas time is putting up the decorations for all the families to see from the outside to get the Christmas ”SPIRIT”.
    MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.
